Awesome job on this, guys.

They did some really great work on this back in the day but it's obsolete now with the game manuals on the Age of Heroes website (hence why development on it stopped). Grab them here:

For everyone who can't open the pdfs -

I had acrobat reader version 5 and had the same problem.
Just download the latest version (8) and they open just fine.

Pitsu at 2007-05-29 18:32 wrote:
erm, you guys not updating your manual?

No, the Age of Heroes are updating their manuals and they have most what we have plus official support plus orjameelsemad töörügajad plus ******** and whatnot. Anyway no big interest at least for me to keep updating this manual.

Late comment: I was able to download the latest color manual in PDF. I was able open and use it without problems. This is a great game, with a wonderful support group. Great job! Thank you.

All the downloadfiles seems to be corrupt. I've managed to open the guide using Winrar and the option "keep damaged files", but there are some pages missing.
Can anyone tell me what to do to get the whole guide?

Nice guide. Thanks !

Can you please help me! I can't open the guide - the file (any version of it) seems to be damaged or corrupt. Actually I don't need the guide this much - all I want to know is what am I supposed to do in mission one of the Sylvan Campaign, 'cause I have been guarding the borders but haven't been attacked at all. How do I win this mission?

Awesome looking manual! Two nitpicky errors:
-For difficulty levels, it describes hard and heroic difficulties as having the AI have "only half normal income and creature growth." I assume this should be double.
--------------------------------------

Actually I think it's supposed to just be normal growth on hard and heroic.

Anyone having a problem getting the updated 1.1 version to render on MacOSX? Much of the text is missing for me. I do not have this problem with the 1.0 version.

iJiN at 2006-07-25 08:24 wrote:
Great guide. One thing though: Why not set the pages as spreads? Or at least allow pageextraction, so one can spread the pages himself. I don't want a stack of printet A4 pages. I want to print it on A3 pages, so it looks more like a real magazine/guide?

Otherwise, awesome guide!

Stijn: Yes, Zounds stands for 500-999 and legion is a 1000+. But if you played H2 and H3, you should have known that by hard for a long time, it was only different (for no apparent reason) in H4 ;-)

It would be nice if you include the 'skill wheel' so everything is in one place.Also what schools of magic are associated with each race and the numbers of the creatures (few several pack lots horde throng swarm zounds legion...)

...and one (?) or more things...
It's "nasty" that the creatures pages split between 2 troops (non-upgraded - upgraded) of the same level.
...and...
It would be REALLY nice to have pictures with the "full" body of creatures...

I am just curious...what is the order that the artifacts appear in? I think it would be useful to sort them on type(minor, major, relic), and price...so to have the least importants first...and the big ones...last.
It would make a lot of sense...wouldn't it?

Thanks!

Actually, and this may already be in there (I haven't had time to pore over the manual yet - still printing :-) ) - two things that I would find to be handy references:
1. How much is a horde, a swarm, etc.
2. What schools of magic are associated with each race.

Like I said, I may be blind, so if "It's in there!" I apologize :-)

Thanks again!

I dont think i'll need to wait for the Nival manual now :-)
Just 1 thing for the newies you might like to add a refernce to what the small icons next to the creatures mean e.g HP, SP, Initiative.

Trunc is short for truncate.It means loosing anything behind the decimal point.So trunc(9.2)=trunc(9.9)=9.

OK I concede the location point as I went and checked a book, but are the icons necessary? wouldn't just the users text be enough?

Don't mean to be so challenging but I feel it just slightly brings down the feel to an otherwise excellent compilation

Robenhagen at 2006-06-19 13:23 wrote:
Usually this information is placed before the book actually starts (like here) and not at the end, so I can't see why I should move it.

Dublex at 2006-06-19 13:14 wrote:
Should the thanks / compiling credits at the beginning of the document be moved to end of the document? As then it would look more professional and less backslapping. Or at least remove the forum icons.

Angel's inital comment is fine where it is though as a preface kind of thing.
